    UmmZayd!! I can’t wait to see you and Zaydi inshaAllah. (yes, i’ve already nicknamed him Zaydi)

    MA, inshaAllah OumAadam and her sister and I will be doing a table, for emanrush, FAITH pubs and also AlMaghrib at ISNA. Bi’ithnillah call us if you’ll come to the conference.

    (btw…I think your comments are being taken wayy out of context at muslimmatters…wa Allahul Musta’aan!)

  4. I likely can’t make it, but, generally speaking, are events like this ever open to non-muslims?

  5. Asalaam alaikum MA,
    Masha~allah your okay. Or at least feeling better. Yes this weekend was hectic insha~allah some one benefited from all the KNOWLEDGE floating out there.
    Ma salaam
    Ummie

  6. Bill, yes these events are open to non-Muslims and there were non-Muslims in attendance this past weekend.

    Asalamu alaykum UmmAmirah,

    Alhamdulillah, I am feeling much better and I had a lot of fun over the weekend. There was also a Quran competition at the MCC.

  7. I dropped my family over at Dar us Salam thing… then went to lunch with abu ameerah and sh chao… i guess in hindsight i missed a lot of other good stuff… but hey i thoroughly enjoyed my time with the two teachers of DAS. wasalam

  8. Thanks.

    I’m clearly going to have to learn some more of these phrases you folks routinely use. I do look them up on occasion, but I don’t know if they’re ‘reserved’…if you know what I mean.

  9. Salaams MA,
    Astagfirullah I missed so much that weekend 😦 but I did enjoy myself at the brunch n beauty day!
